Furqan’s First Flattop – a book for Black and Latino kids

As a Black and Mexican person with a little boy with an afro with will some day be cut into who knows what kind of style, I look forward to reading this book to him. Better yet, he and his dad can read it together. =)

Furqan Moreno wakes up and decides that today he wants his hair cut for the first time. His dad has just the style: a flat top fade! He wants his new haircut to be cool but when they get to the barbershop, he’s a bit nervous about his decision. He begins to worry that his hair will look funny, imagining all the flat objects in his day to day life. Before he knows it, his haircut is done and he realizes that his dad was right — Furqan’s first flat top is the freshest!

“Furqan’s First Flat Top” is a bilingual children’s book about the love between and father and son, reassurance, imagination, and of course a “flat top”. If you would like to purchase a copy for your library, classroom, office, or home please go to FurqansFirst.com
